Have Your Pet Blessed!
The 8th annual “Blessing of the Animals” will take place on the front lawn of Bellaire United Methodist Church on Saturday, April 21 from 10:00 am until noon. At this fun, family-friendly and pet-friendly event, people of all faiths are invited to bring their dogs, cats, hamsters, fish or other pets to receive an individual blessing from one of the church’s pastors. Plus your pet will receive a FREE commemorative photo from Nikky Lawell Photography; and you can visit with a variety of pet experts and service organizations including Faithful Paws, Natural Pawz, Rover Oaks Pet Resort, Animeals on Wheels, Southeastern Guide Dogs, and Mission K9 Rescue. You can also check out the wonderful adoptable pets brought by Golden Beginnings Golden Retriever Rescue, Westie & Scottie Rescue Houston, Houston Cocker Spaniel Rescue, and All Texas Dachshund Rescue (ATDR). Remember that all pets should be friendly and either on-leash (dogs), in protective carriers (cats), or in cages (birds, small mammals), fish bowls, or terrariums (fish, reptiles).
